Featured above is a promotional photo showing legendary Dodger manager Leo Durocher with Herman Munster (Fred Gwynne), dated April 4, 1965. (eBay link) As you may know, they filmed an episode of The Munsters where Herman came out for a Baseball tryout. Watch a snippet of the episode here.

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1998 the Dodgers signed free agent outfielder Devon White. He would play two season in Los Angeles before being traded to the Brewers for Marquis Grissom in 2001. As a Dodger he slashed .267/.330/.402/.732. In 2001 the Dodgers received left-handed starting pitcher Omar Daal from the Phillies for Eric Junge and Jesus Cordero. Thirty-year old Daal would go on to have a decent year for the Dodgers. He went 11-9 with an 3.90 ERA in 161.1 innings, 105 strikeouts, 54 walks and a 1.3 WAR.
